Engage Us For SMSF Audit

We are a specialist SMSF audit provider and we pride ourselves on our effective and efficient service. We provide auditing services to SMSF Trustees, accountants and financial planners alike.

Before engaging us for audit, you would need to read our Audit Engagement Letter which clarifies our auditor roles and responsibilities under the Superannuation Industry (Supervision) Act 1993 (the SIS Act) and Regulations.

The Audit Engagement Letter, signed by both the auditor and Trustees, will avoid any misunderstanding as to the nature and the extent of the audit. it should confirm the auditor’s acceptance of the appointment and clearly document the scope of the audit.

During the audit we will also ask you to sign a Trustee Representation Letter. We will then issue you with an audit report. Keep this report on your records. Remember, the audit report is not sent to the ATO with your SMSF tax return.
